Twice

Oh my god! This is so exactly like my life I can't even begin to tell you how much.

Twice

Especially the Cheerios.

I admire your deep commitment to your work *and* your child. I hear that you feel like you're failing everyone but (from my limited perspective on your life as a reader of your blog) it seems like you are doing it all and this juggling has to get easier. (I know that life with children gets a little easier as they become walkers and talkers.) I have a doctorate (from a large University in New Haven) in the social sciences that is sort of "on the shelf" until my children are school age--this choice creates great financial strain and the likelihood that I will spend the rest of my days as an adjunct. I'm aware and (mostly) okay with the consequences of my choice to parent full time for a few years. I'm certain that your hard work now (which sounds so intense and stressful) is going to yield a strong career and a strong child--right? I wish that the academic world were different and that you could take more time for yourself, child, and husband without falling behind in your career. Keep some sort of faith--Summer is coming...

P.S. Thank you for sharing your experience.
